MetroTwit 1 year on.. the almost perfect Twitter client.


Its a tough gig being a twitter client these days, between fierce competition and twitter pulling the rug out from underneath you. None of that has scared off popular native Windows client MetroTwit as they celebrate their first birthday. One of the developers David Golden announced just under an hour ago that over 30,000 people have tried the latest beta.

The app builds on and takes advantage of .NET 4.0 and WPF4 frameworks to achieve its slick, clean, functionality. Feature-wise MetroTwit is full of them, support for Windows 7 taskbar jump lists, infinite scrolling, resizable columns, high DPI support and more.

Like all good modern software, updates over the past 12 months have certainly come thick and fast, which are always welcome. Updates have added functionality and stability without overtaking that slick, clean UI. Keep up the great work guys (Long Zheng, David Golden and Winston Pang), the only feature I MUST have in a desktop twitter client that MetroTwit doesn’t currently have is the ability to edit column search criteria. This means you have to go through the cumbersome process of deleting a column, then adding another. Please add it and I’ll ditch TweetDeck in a heartbeat.
